This museum contained a wealth of information about the archaeology of the region over many eras. It has been a highly strategic area throughout history.

Going to Kavala is not very usual but this large city has a good Museum that is very enlightening to visit and admire the ancient cultures.

Good setting with explanation both in English and Greek. If you want to carefully look at the setting, take two hours. Admission for adults is € 2 for a child we are not charged. I was annoyed with not at all discreet monitoring the three of us, as the only visitors. They literally blew my neck. Rude and barely answered my two questions.
Compared with the museum in Philippi, this one is better, but with Tassos museum it can not even compare.

Manageable size, well laid out and labelled. Interesting finds from Kavala, Filippi and the surrounding area. Welcoming staff that seemed almost surprised to have a foreign visitor...
